    Is the Springfield Arms Hi-cap 1911 GI double Stack?

    They have the worst website ever so I can't get any info from it...

    They have a few GI Models, ranging from black to green, 4"-5", and they have a model called the Hi-cap which is 13+1 instead of the standard 7+1. The pistols look identical to each other, so does the hi-cap version come with a magazine that sticks out of the gun, or is the gun different (double stack mags)?

    I had no idea springfield made a doublestack 1911 which is why I'm asking.

    Does anyone know?

    Here's a pic:




    Vs non hi-cap





    Different grips, but what else?

    Its a double stack. If you look carefully you can see were they swell the frame to wedge the double stack mag in there. I hate the double stacks, but if you can handle a glock 21 it shouldnt be much different. However some parts wont interchange with mil spec.
    The Italians have a saying. "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." And although they've never won a war or mass-produced a decent car, in this area they are correct.

    Its a widebody, if you are interested in a widebody 1911, look at STI if you want a modular frame or Caspian if you want a steel frame.

    Yet another 'hi-cap' widebody 1911 choice would be Para-Ordinance.

    I'm not keen on the double stack. Just seems wrong somehow. I very briefly considered a Kimber until I realized this particular model (don't remember which model) was a double stack. Wasn't the feel in my hands, but something else about it. I ahve considered a Para LDA however at it was a double stack. Still might go back and buy it if it's still there and I have the funds.

    These S.A. hi-caps use Para-Ordanance mags.
